comment What file type should I use for a logo when exporting from Adobe Illustrator?
In my experience over the last few years, it's extraordinarily rare to run into a provider who requires EPS. The only two I've encountered since around 2005 were both small mom and pop signage/screen print places with old equipment. When I send to professional NC engravers and laser cutting shops or large signage firms it's always PDF, Illustrator 10 or AutoCAD files.

comment What unique benefits does the EPS format provide?
You just said exactly the same thing I did. All your points are explicit in my answer. Old equipment, old software, obsolescent techniques are the only reasons to use EPS anymore.

comment Critique: Web color and typography
If feedback is only visible on the invis.io site, and there's no screenshot here, then this question provides no value at all for future visitors. If you include a screenshot in the question, and we get answers here, I'll keep the question. Otherwise I'll have to close it as being of no value.

comment What unique benefits does the EPS format provide?
Definitely. There are almost no useful applications for eps anymore. Ah... I thought of one other: MS Office apps accept EPS as an image format. 'Nuff said.

In this case, you don't care. You just want small file size. Look up "jpeg compression" for info on what data is lost.

comment Hiding Pixelation using Photo effects: “LOMO”
The original Lomo was a cheap, rather badly-made Soviet-era camera. Lomo was to cameras what Yugo was to cars, but the low quality of its shots (blur, light leaks, distortion, vignetting) made for a kitchy, artsy look if you used it right. The LOMO movement took off in the early 90s, and it's still going.

comment Background images get distorted or random lines appear
An 8-bit png can't display enough colors to avoid banding (that's the term you're asking about), and a 24-bit png would be too heavy for a web application. Save a jpeg at high compression for best results.
